    That was the quickest survey i've participated in my life. But you should add raw carbon steel like this one, which is a favorite in argentina.

    Those are cool, my only thing with mild steel is it rusts like crazy.

    Not if you use it well. You let the grease there and next time you BBque you clean it with some news paper.

    Depends on the type of heat - for propane I prefer a Plancha style grill with raised grid.  For charcoal I prefer thin wire Stainless Steel.  I prefer to cook with the coals rather than the retained heat in the grill.

    Was this an option in the survey?


    I wonder what nasty chemicals are released when that metal is heated up?

    @teamfat   Depends on how badly either the Depends or the diapers leaked!   /img/vbsmilies/smilies/bounce.gif/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rollsmile.gif/img/vbsmilies/smilies/crazy.gif

    Cast iron on my weber kettle for a good steak sear, think the Traeger has ceramic grates... depends on use and if it is exposed to much wet.
